Kandahar Racing are putting on an awesome week of race training exclusively for BMF members in the stunning location of Murren, Switzerland from 02-09 March 2019. Our coaching team will provide participants with a week of world class ski race coaching and instruction - we’ll work you hard both on and off the mountain. If you have any energy left then of course there’s the Apres-Ski to make the most of as well! This camp is limited to participants aged 18 or over, and there is no maximum age limit!!!


TRAINING

The training programme will include instruction for beginners and for those keen to try racing we’ll provide technique training, skills, drills, Slalom gates, Giant Slalom gates, Pro SL head to head racing and timed SL and GS racing. Fitness training, video analysis, WC video analysis and ski prep guidance will also be included off the hill. Murren is the historic home of Kandahar Ski Club, it hosted the first ever World Championships (organised by Kandahar) and it’s got the most fantastic training and racing facilities. We’ll make sure we run a fun end of camp race for everyone to see who’ll be crowned the BMF ski champion 2019! You’ll be looked after all week no matter what level your skiing is at - if you just want to learn the basics then that’s no problem - and if you want to chase down Lindsey Vonn and Bode Miller we can help you do that too!

STAFF

The coaching team will be Matt Shepherd (Scottish Team & 7 times undefeated Army Downhill Champion), Jo Ryding (English Team & RAF Head Coach for 8 years), Dan Poth (GBR junior team), Ash Breese (GBR senior team) & Kate Angus (Scottish Team). Our team have a wealth of international and military ski racing experience and hold some of the highest coaching and instructing qualifications in the country. They’re all excited about working with BMF and can’t wait to pass on their knowledge and enthusiasm for ski racing.

FORMAT

Participants may join the programme as inliers or outliers. Inliers receive the full package while outliers simply pay for the coaching only and may dip in and out of the programme on a day by day basis. It is recommended however that all participants take part in the full programme from the first day on snow (3rd Mar) through until the last day on snow (8th Mar). This will allow for a structured and developmental programme to be put in place throughout the week, allowing the groups to build upon what they’ve learnt each day and to work towards an end of camp championship race.

ACCOMMODATION & COSTS

All inliers will be accommodated at the Murren Sportchalet which is located in the centre of the village and is a 5-min walk from the training hill. Inlier costs are based on sharing twin or triple rooms and are inclusive of half board accommodation, lift pass, training fees and transfers. Inlier costs do not include flights or equipment hire. Ski hire facilities are available, however we recommend that participants use their own equipment if possible. Outlier costs cover training fees only – outliers are required to coordinate their own accommodation, food, lift passes, travel and transfers.

TRAVEL

EasyJet flights to Geneva if booked early enough cost under £250pp return inc holdall and ski bags. Please do not book any flights until you have submitted your online booking and had your place on the camp confirmed. Murren can be reached easily by train or by hire car and is 2.5 hours drive from the airport. Inliers will have a transfer coach put on courtesy of Kandahar Racing, departing Geneva airport at 1400hrs prompt on the 2nd Mar, and then for the return it will arrive back at the airport by 1200hrs on the 9th Mar. Participants are requested to book flights that work to the above transfer times and dates if they'd like a place on the transfer bus. This means your flights should arrive in Geneva before 1300hrs on the 2nd Mar, and your flights should depart Geneva any time after 1400hrs on the 9th Mar. If you are travelling to Murren independently, we ask that you arrive at the hotel no later than 1800hrs so that you can be in location for the arrival brief followed by dinner.
